For Cine, its very well known that when you enter the shutter angular data and the fps rate, the exposure time will be changed as one constant Time:

Example, for 172.8° shutter angle

T = 1/62.5 @ 29.97fps
T = 1/52 @ 25fps
T = 1/50 @ 23.976fps

For HD Cine, as far as I understand, nothing is limited, so you have to enter the Time and the fps, and each one affects the exposure individually. So, different fps rates will be locked with the same Time such as,

T = 1/125 could be @ 29.97, 25, 23.976fps (no shutter angle for rolling shutter)

This is confusing for an old fashioned cinematographer. :)

When you said "last" I thought you meant Sekonic was stopping production of light meters!

I freaked out for a moment. :)

Don't worry Zac.
I was at SEKONIC in Tokyo last month.
They have no plans for that :D
